for america's best loved company or is even more selling ahead? pete and john and jerry and stephen weiss and terranova are the traders. apple sits at the lows today as we come on the air. >> right. i have yet to find a reason for me to dip back into apple presently. you know, there's different stories out it seems like each and every day why it's out, what the buys are and selloffs all. forget all that for a moment. the stock seems to be stuck in a range and tlink are other opportunities out there. there's a lot of expectations for why it's moving around the way it is. specifically people are pointing to, is it for tax reasons? the other day it was for the margins. whatever the reason you're seeing an accelerated move each and every day. i haven't seen a reason to jump back in there yet. i still own the stock but not to add anything to it. i still think there are far better beta names out there to trade. >> doc, are you at odds with your brother? i want to read you stats that are going to shock you. >> please. >> in the past 9 of 11 weeks, $115 billion in market cap washed away from appl

: stephen greenspan is a university of colorado professor who writes and lectures on gullibility, warning audiences that not reading the fine print or buying something on a tip from your brother-in-law are bad ideas and that older people are particularly vulnerable to a friendly pitch from a conman. in most of the great moments of gullibility in history, the perpetrator seems to target a particular group, correct? >> yes. there have been mormon ponzi schemes targeting mormons or fundamentalist christians. madoff mostly was aimed at jews 'cause he was a prominent jewish philanthropist. so, yes, there is this affiliation aspect of it because we tend to trust our own kind. >> here in 1919 as charles ponzi self-styled financial wizard loafing at his boston mansion with his lovely wife and proud and adoring mother. >> safer: mr. ponzi himself promised fellow italian immigrants he could make them rich trading in postal reply coupons, sort of the pre-paid phone cards of the day. ponzi went to prison and died a pauper. >> i went out looking for trouble. i found it. >> safer: but his name lives on

to stephen weiss, who has been all over this. he mentioned, actually, he was talking about sears holdings taking away some of that, and that becomes an interesting story. because if sears can reinvent themselves and maybe they're being able to do it quicker than jcpenney, that could be a turnaround story that's well worth watching opposed to jcp -- >> you think sears is turning around in fashion -- >> i don't know if they're turning it around but they are starting to turn some around, and they are stealing customers for sure. >> macy's, of course, one of the biggest beneficiaries of j jcpenney going downhill -- >> they seem to have their act together. karen's liked macy's for awhile. if you had to pick between the two, i would rather own m right now than jcp, understanding there could be a huge short covering rally at some point, but if that's what you're betting against, i would just frankly ride on macy's. >>> coming up, shaking off if fiscal cliff fears and getting bullish for 2013. and find out what sectors he's betting on. >>> and then, our traders are telling you how to stack in you

"fortune" magazine senior editor first broke the money behind the newtown massacre story. dan, let's talk a little bit about this. how do you react to the idea cerberus is now, in light of this, going to sell the company they so meticulously put together. it's not as though people didn't know that they were in the weapons business here all along. now they are saying we want to be out of it because we don't want to be part of the debate or they think the heat on them is going to become too great. >> i think it's the heat not part of the debate. they owned freedom group when freedom group had paid lobbyists in d.c. working on gun issues. that's not directly cerberus but clearly that makes them part of the poli

is remarkable to me, stephen weiss, is that a lot of analysts are finally getting behind ron johnson and his style, because jcpenney has reverted back to its promotion always, which didn't work in the first place. >> it's mind boggling he still walks around with a halo. why you would ever want to go near this stock, even if they turn it around, it still selling at 20 times fiscal numbers. going to have to raise equity, versus now given what we've seen, the carnage. you have macy's at less than ten times next year and there's no turn around. so, why buy it? i still say sell it. ten bucks written all over it. go somewhere else. >> are you with weiss? >> i'm not in jcpenney at all right now. i'm long macy's. when you look at jcpenney, i want to short the name. so, you saw when it started to rally back about four months ago, it went from 26 to 31 on a rumor. that's short covering there. so, this is a tough name to be short. because there's so much short -- >> i'm no longer short. i covered in the high teens. >> the one thing we didn't mention on yesterday's show was the long, the pending potenti

a little stephen, a little optimism -- steepening, a little optimism that growth will be better, but i suspect it's not because of quantitative easing it's going to do that. it's more that people will be focused on what the fed's going do next, which we think is a big communications policy change which we think will come at the march meeting. >> what will the communication change be? >> yeah, the communication change we're expecting is that the federal reserve will go to what we're now calling an evans rule which is the fed will basically say we're going to hold rates low and remain accommodative until such time as unemployment's much lower or inflation is much higher. neither of those things seems likely. we think that this will just extend out the market's expectation of when the fed is going to start taking back some of the accommodation they've added the last five years. even into 2017 is what we're expecting the market to start pricing. >> how are treasuries going to trade through -- if this scenario pans out, how are treasuries going to trade through it? >> i think firstly the fi
